11:00pm
i'm thinking of that dr. pepper that red platoon, you know, that was our drink forever. i'm thinking of the days in the gym, you know. i'm thinking about the constant, you know, teasing going back and forth between mace and kopas. >> for clint romesha, it's all about the buddies he served with, the ones he led that day, and the eight men who did not make it back. >> when you sit there and, i mean, you look to your left and your right you see those battle buddies. you know, on the ground, squeezing those triggers at that point, those are who depend on you, and those are who you depend on. that's who i do it for. the situation we're in, in the here and now, regardless of how we got there, you know, being
11:01pm
the team player and knowing i've got his back and he's got mine. that's what i reflect. that's what i -- what motivates me. >> president obama will award the medal of honor to clint romesha on monday at the white house. he will also be honored at the pentagon on tuesday, after which he will come back here to minot, north dakota, and continue with his new job. meanwhile, the war in afghanistan continues. more than 60,000 american service members are right now in that country fighting that war. good evening, everyone. it's hard to imagine a bigger night because it's hard to imagine -- forecast a bigger winter storm than the one that forecasters say could dump more than 2 feet of snow on parts of the country. tens of millions of people could be affected. already thousands of flights have been canceled. we'll tell you what you need to know about where the storm is going to be. we begin tonight with breaking news about the hunt for a killer.
11:02pm
he has the means to inflict mass casualties and a mission calling for precisely that. this is a man that police all over southern california are trying to find and may be one step closer to locating. christopher jordan dorner, an ex-navy officer with a grudge against the lapd. breaking news tonight, police have located his burned out truck near big bear lake. that's about 100 miles east of los angeles. that's the truck there, burned out. they have not, however, located dorner. just moments ago, we learned that the fbi went to the suspect's home in las vegas. we do not know, however, what, if anything, they discovered there. meantime, back at big bear lake, the l.a. times is reporting that fresh tracks were found nearby. check points are up on local roads and the faa has barred all local news choppers from the air space overhead. as for the suspect himself, authorities say that christopher dorner is not only armed, not only dangerous and vowing revenge on his former lapd
11:03pm
officers but also people close to them. in a strange and chilling online manifesto allegedly written by dorner, he says, and i quote, i never had an opportunity to have a family of mine own, i'm terminating yours. as for his capabilities, a local police officer had this to say, quote, of course he knows what he's doing. we trained him. i learned today that dorner sent me a package to my office here in cnn in new york. the package arrived on february 1st. i receive a lot of strange packages and letters and we have a system in place for dealing with them. i did not personally see this package or know about it until today. the package contained a dvd and a bullet-riddled keepsake coin called the challenge coin. it's nomhis former boss, william bradden, who joins me shortly to talk about it. that coin had three bullet holes in the center, as you can see. and one partial hole on its edge, on the upper right-hand corner of the coin. we're going to show you more of the contents of that package in a moment. in addition, we're going to talk to a veteran crime reporter about ways of stopping a revenge killer, and chris lawrence on the type of sniper training the
11:04pm
suspect has. but we begin with randi kaye. >> we're under attack. that was the word from one california police lieutenant after at least three officers were shot early thursday morning. one officer died. police say the shooter is this man, 33-year-old christopher jordan dorner, a former lapd officer who was fired in 2008. police say two of the officers were shot around 1:30 in the morning here in riverside. they were sitting in their patrol car, parked at a nearby spotlight. that's when investigators say dorner ambushed them and opened fire. a good samaritan called for help using the officers' car radio. one of the officers died. the other was taken to riverside community hospital. the reason for the rampage, it appears to be dorner's attempt at revenge for losing his job. and an effort to clear his name. all of that found online in a long, rambling manifesto
11:05pm
allegedly posted by dorner. in it, there are direct threats against police officers dorner once worked with, as well as threats against their families. it reads, there will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep. i have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving. throughout the manifesto, dorner accuses the other officers of costing him his career, also of racism and use of excessive force. about an hour before that fatal shooting in riverside, police believe dorner shot another officer here in corona, about 13 miles away. the bullet just grazed him. the officer in this incident had been assigned to protect other officers who dorner had allegedly threatened in his online postings. >> the officer was fired upon with a shoulder weapon. officers were able to return fire. one officer sustained a graze wound to his head. the vehicle sustained numerous hits.
11:06pm
>> the officers are okay, but dorner got away. immediately, the california highway patrol issues what's called a blue alert to law enforcement, warning them a gunman considered armed and extremely dangerous is on the run. the blue alert is activated for nine california counties frk stretching all the way south to san diego where police say the attempted hijacking of a boat could be linked to dorner. dorner's police badge was also found in the city, but his shooting spree may have started days ago here in irvine. on sunday morning, monica quan, the daughter of a police official named in the manifesto, was shot and killed along with her fiance while sitting in their car. on wednesday, police officially named dorner as the suspect. quan, who was 27, was the daughter of retired los angeles police officer randal quan. in dorner's alleged online rantings, he blamed randal quan for mishandling the appeal for his termination.
11:07pm
dorner lost his appeal in 2011. before monica quan was killed, dorner allegedly made this threat in his writings. i never had the opportunity to have a family of my own. i'm terminating yours. police here know what they're up against. neighborhoods are on lockdown. intersections sealed off. officers on edge. so much so that two undercover lapd officers opened fire on a pick-up truck they thought was dorner's. turns out it was two women delivering newspapers. one was reportedly shot in the hand. the other in the back. but they'll be okay. meantime, the lapd says it's doing all it can to insure the safety of their personnel and their families. >> of course, he knows what he's doing. we trained him. he was also a member of the armed forces. it is -- it is extremely worrisome and scary. especially to the police officers involved. >> those officers know if the
11:08pm
online writings belong to christopher dorner, the police have a bull's eye on their back, and the man coming for them is want afraid to die. >> at this hour, do authorities have any idea where dorner is? are they getting closer? there was a local news report about tracks away from the truck. >> they hope they're getting closer. at this mountain, bear mountain ski resort is on lockdown. they found christopher dorner's truck around 2:30 this afternoon. they're going through the truck. it is burned out. they won't say whether or not they found weapons, but they said they found fresh footprints. they're certainly trying to follow up on those. there are about 400 homes in that ski resort area. they are going door to door. they have called in a lot of extra officers to help. it's unclear if the homes are vacant or if people are there part time or full time. he could be hiding out in one of those homes. also, they haven't received any reports of stolen vehicles. the question is, is he still on foot? can he carry all his ammunition and weaponry on foot?
11:09pm
no question, everybody here still on edge. if you look around here, the officers, they're carrying rifles all over the area. they have their hands on their weapons. every moment, just a short time ago, there were s.w.a.t. teams and police cars rushing by us, so they're certainly on edge, hoping to get an end to this safely, anderson. >> let's hope they do. as i mentioned at the top, in addition to posting the manifesto online, the subject also reached out to be directly, mailing a parcel to my offense on the first of the month. he found this hand labeled dvd with a post-it know saying, quote, i never lied. the dvd shows testimony from a man who said he was kicked by an lapd officer. confirming dorner's story that he said got him kicked off the force initially.
11:10pm
also, a coin wrapped in duct tape. the tape bearing the message, thanks but no thanks. we thought on top it was the initials i.m.o.a., however, if you look more closely at it, it appears to be the number one with a space and the letter m.o.a. that could spend for one minute of ark, which is a marksmanship term. the coin, three bullet holes. that was the coin that was part of this parcel. as i mention, i was made aware of this parcel just today as was the editorial staff of my program and also cnn management, and upon learning of its existence, cnn notified chief bratton and the police department. chief bratton joins me now. i want to show you some of the images that apparently were sent to me.
11:11pm
i didn't know about this until really just a few hours ago. i know you're seeing these images for the first time. the first is a coin, the kind of coin that i would imagine either you give out or it's the kind of things soldiers give out or on police forces they have a ceremonial coin with bullets shot through in the middle and on the side. what do you make this? how did he get this coin? >> chances are he would have received it from me. the photograph that has been displayed widely of me shaking his hand in front of a pair of flags would have been the custom i have when someone is activated into the military, heading overseas, i would bring them to the office, present them with one of these coins as a token of respect and good luck and have their family come up to me, and have a liaison officer who would work with the family while the soldier is gone. looking at the coin, that's what is called a challenge coin. it's my personal coin i give out
11:12pm
to people, and it's a coin that's usually an inch and a half to two inches in half. looks like he shot it through with a .22. >> i think it's a military tradition, whenever i'm with a military group, they'll coin me, or i think president obama has other high officials who have them. do you remember anything about this person? >> i actually do not. and it's interesting because he's a very distinctive looking individual, just the sheer size of him, but in the course of a year in the lapd, i would probably handle anywhere from 200 to 400 disciplinary cases, major cases. and in a 10,000-person department over the space of seven years, i don't recall him. as distinctive as he looks, and i don't recall the specific set of circumstances for which i fired him, or discharged him. now, i have reviewed all those documents, but i have no recollection of it in the sense of even after meeting him.
11:13pm
>> in the parcel that was sent to me, and again, this arrived on, i guess, february 1st, and i'm just learning about it and cnn management is just learning about it today, there was duct tape the coin was wrapped in. on the duct tape, hard to see there, it says thanks but no thanks, will bratton. up on the top, it says i am moa, which we thinks is an abbreviation for imagine more open america. do you have any connection? does that make any sense to you? >> it doesn't make any sense to me. i received a call from your security department just about an hour ago, actually, informing me that they had received this package, i believe, last friday. and as you have indicated, you are just becoming aware of it today, as is senior management, i guess, at cnn. what you are shown me is, being quite frank with you, very disturbing to anybody who would look at it and understand it was
11:14pm
accompanied by some form of letter or written correspondence, so one of the issues i spoke to chief breck a short while ago to inform him, and i understand your security has forwards it to the fbi and they'll share it with the lapd as they move their investigation forward. >> i didn't see it because as you can imagine i get a lot of correspondence and a lot of nutty correspondence and usually forward it. >> as i do as chief of police. >> usually it doesn't even go to me. i sort of forward it on to the security folks. he lists you in this manifesto. he clearly has some sort of a beef with you. does -- does any of that resonate. does it make any sense to you? >> in terms of without speaking specifically to the manifesto and what's in it, although there's public documents i understand the media has been very good about not identifying other people who are listed in the document.
11:15pm
in my case, i was the chief of police that signed off on his discharge from the lapd. so in terms of his grievances, i could understand his grievance directed toward me and my capacity as chief of police, but a lot of people get discharged, and a lot of police officers get discharged. and none of them resort to the actions that this young man has taken. >> well, mr. bratton, i appreciate you joining us. i want to bring in a colleague with experience reporting on law enforcement and participating in it. john miller worked in counterterrorism for the lapd for three years and he's also a cbs correspondent. you have long history in law enforcement. what do you make of this suspect, given his training? how hard is it to track him down? >> it's a unique case. in some ways, you have the classic manhunt, and you also have something that is quite an anomaly which is you have the
11:16pm
hunted, who is also hunting the hunters. he has obviously fired at police officers. he's turned on them as they have approached him. so this is not your average manhunt. you're talking about a guy who has military training in close quarter battle tactics, all kinds of weapons, long weapons, short weapons, automatic weapons, semiautomatic weapons. he's certified in intelligence and counter intelligence which means he's learned the trade task of intelligence. and beyond the military training, of course, he has the training in tactics and procedures of the lapd. i went through the same academy he did and they spent a great deal of time on firearms proficiency and tactical proficiency. and clearly, he's using that to whatever vantage he can. he knows how they think, how they work. >> what's not going in his favor. >> what is not going in his favor is the flipside of that
11:17pm
coin, which is a criminal who is on the run, anderson, has the ability to tap into their criminal network, their colleagues, their associates, other criminals who will give them aid, comfort, money, cars, phones, a place to be harbored, an escape route. his social circle is going to be fellow military officers who police officers. and those are not the people he can turn to. so he's facing as his profile has risen over the last 24 hours, an increasing sense of isolation of where can he turn to. the discovery of the truck up in big bear is actually interesting and perhaps telling. the fact that he set it on fire as opposed to leaving it by the side of the road in an area that no one was really looking almost suggests he wanted to draw attention to it. that begs the question, has he planned some big fiery ending where there's going to be a confrontation and he'll go out in a blaze of glory? we have seen that before.
11:18pm
or has he planned an out where he had a stash vehicle, a disguise, new identification, and he's back on the move? right now, it's too early to tell. >> given he had this whole manifesto written and the incident that angered him took place in 2008-2009. you would think he had a lot of time to plan this. yet a lot of his movements seem kind of disorganized. he tried to get this boat. that didn't quite work out. then he left his wallet in that area. his wallet was found in the area. does it seem like he's sort of has the steps planned out? >> i think a lot of thought went into this. and he has been -- he's shown some disorganized traits and also some very organized ones. sending the packages out, including the one that came here and other packages that went to other individuals and doing so at the end of january so he could kind of prestage, this is who i am. this is what my grievance is, so that information would be handy
11:19pm
to people once his name emerged. the idea that he cut off all his communications, his cellular telephones, internet, on january 31st, basically wiped himself off the social network, except for the facebook posting that was part of the prestaging. and he had already done the pre-operational surveillance on who his victims would be, where they live, where their family members live. i think if you look at the san diego thing, there's a couple questions there, in stealing the boat, when he tried to do that, he was on his way to getting away, but he didn't handle the dock lines correctly. they got caught up in the rotors. and that spoiled his escape there. you have to wonder, was that part of a plan to go south over the mexican border by sea, or was he going north to some landing point where he had another part of his plan? he's put a lot of thought into this. >> the fact he went after police officers who were guarding people who were in his manifesto i found very aggressive.
11:20pm
the fact that he would go after the police officers who were standing bodyguard over others. >> and how that happened, i learned a little more, is these were -- they pretty much used the entire elite metro division of the lapd to guard these targets. then when they ran out of metro officers because of the number of potential targets, they took one of the gang units from every area and assigned them to additional potential targets. and these officers had rolled into a gas station down in riverside. and a citizen who had seen all those signs on the highway, be on the lookout for this truck, said, hey, i think that truck is on the overpass at magnolia. they circled out of the gas station, headed towards magnolia. they were rolling up on the truck, he came out of the trk, over the top with a semiautomatic rifle. opened fire on the officers. they returned fire, but you know, what it tells us, anderson, is he's not waiting for the car to stop. he's not looking to take off and get in a chase. if given the opportunity, he's
11:21pm
going to take the element of surprise, the element of speed, and the violence of action. the very things they taught him and trained him in the navy and he's going to use that to try and overwhelm. >> scary stuff. john miller, i appreciate it. we learn local authorities are planning to hold a news conference at 8:30 eastern time. about 12 minutes from now. we'll come back to the man hunt shortly. looking at the alleged killer's manifesto, is there anything to be learned in that? the truck has been located about 100 miles east of l.a. a very extensive search under way. first breaking news that could bury tens of millions of people in a ton of snow. chad myers in the weather center has been watching the storm grow into really kind of a monster. what's the latest? >> we still have in this pink area here, anderson, all winter storm warnings. more importantly, 23 million americans are in blizzard warnings tonight. starting about 6:00 a.m. tomorrow, and some spots won't get snow until even noon. but by the time we do this show again tomorrow night, literally,
11:22pm
there could be 10 inches of snow in some spots and it will still be snowing. this is the least amount of accumulation model i have seen, thinking this isn't going to happen. 7.5 for new york city, 12.8 for boston. this model does believe the merger of the two storms, one to the west, one coming in from the south, will happen with new york city at 14, boston at 34 inches of snow before it's all done. and winds to 60 miles per hour. >> wow. >> one more thing, anderson. where that big bear truck was located out west, there's now a winter storm warning there as well for those officers. >> wow, interesting. that's going to make it a lot more difficult. thank you very much. let us know what you think about all that's going on. up next, back to the manhunt for christopher dorner and the hunt for motives and the words he wrote and posted online. and...done. did you just turn your ringer off so no one would interrupt us? oh no, i... just used my geico app to get a tow truck.
11:23pm
it's gonna be 30 minutes. oh, so that means that we won't be stuck up here, for hours, with nothing to do. oh i get it, you wanna pass the time, huh. (holds up phone) fruit ninja!!! emergency roadside assistance. just a click away with the geico mobile app. in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken
11:24pm
if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol that day. do not drive or operate machinery until at least 4 hours after taking intermezzo and you're fully awake. driving, eating, or engaging in other activities while not fully awake without remembering the event the next day have been reported. abnormal behaviors may include aggressiveness, agitation, hallucinations, or confusion. alcohol or taking other medicines that make you sleepy may increase these risks. in depressed patients, worsening of depression, including risk of suicide, may occur. intermezzo, like most sleep medicines, has some risk of dependency. common side effects are headache, nausea, and fatigue. so if you suffer from middle-of-the-night insomnia, ask your doctor about intermezzo and return to sleep again. ♪ and return to sleep again. it's not what you think. it's a phoenix with 4 wheels.
11:25pm
it's a hawk with night vision goggles. it's marching to the beat of a different drum. and where beauty meets brains. it's big ideas with smaller footprints. and knowing there's always more in the world to see. it's the all-new lincoln mkz. back to the breaking news out of southern california. we're waiting for a press conference from big bear where police have located the truck belonging to the alleged police shooter, christopher dorner.
11:26pm
road blocks up, news choppers barred from the area. his whereabouts still remain unknown. he's accused of killing three people. we'll bring you the news conference as soon as it happens. he has killed three people already and he vows to kill more. >> the subject line reads last resort. it's perhaps the only explanation we'll hear from the alleged shooter, christopher dorner. over 11,000 words posted on his facebook page earlier today addressed simply to america. it's pages and pages of threats, confessions, and rambling opinions. and it is chilling to read. he writes, quote, i know i'll be vilified by the lapd and the media. unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that i do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the lapd and reclaim my name. the question is what would you do to clear your name? dorner clearly wants vindication from the lapd which terminated him in 2008 for making false statements to a superior
11:27pm
officer. the attacks will stop when the department states the truth about my innocence publicly, he writes, i will not accept any type of currency/goods in exchange for the attacks to stop, nor do i want it. i want my name back, period. he said he was telling the truth and he urges the media to investigate his case. he writes, quote, with the discovery and evidence available, you will see the truth. unfortunately, i will not be alive to see my name cleared. dorner writes repeatedly about his own death. at one point, he writes, self preservation is no longer important to me. i do not fear death. he also writes, i have nothing to lose. you cannot prevail against an enemy combatant who has no fear of death. dorner wants to make sure he's not branded a liar, but seems to have no concerns about being a killer. he promises the violence of action will be high. and he lists members of the lapd by name in his manifesto, writing, in essence, i have lost
11:28pm
everything because the lapd took my name and knew i was innocent. your day has come. later, he writes, you destroyed my life and name because of your actions. time is up. dorner doesn't stop there. he writes, suppressing the truth will lead to deadly consequences for you and your family. i never had an opportunity to have a family of my own. i'm terminating yours. it seems me made good on that promise. on sunday, he shot and killed 27-year-old monica quan, the daughter of one of the officers named in the manifesto. two others have been shot so far, and the manifesto threatens more will come. i know your route to and from home and your division. i know your significant others routine, your children's best friends and recess. i assure you that the casualty rate will be high. dorner doesn't just stick to threats. the manifesto is also filled with bizarre ramblings in everything from news casters to gun control to entertainment. he said he's a fan of the "hangover" movies and offers this opinion about michelle
11:29pm
obama. off the record, i love your new bangs, mrs. obama. a woman whose professional and educational accomplishments are second to none when compared to recent first wives. dorner's tone is unwavering. he's on a crusade, he feels, to purge the lapd of corruption, and he tries to portray himself as a person of morals. he writes, i'm not an aspiring rapper, i'm not a gang member, i'm not a dope dealer. i'm a man who has lost complete faith in the system when the system betrayed, slandered, and libelled me. i lived a good life and though not a religious man, i had a code of ethics. no one grows up and wants to be a cop killer. as a young police officer i found my calling in life, but i found out that the violent suspects on the street aren't the only people you have to watch. >> we're waiting for a news
11:30pm
conference at big bear where chris corner's truck was found. chris, if this press conference starts, i'm going to break into our interview. >> got you. >> what i found interesting and puzzling is big parts of the manifesto don't sound like they came from an insane person or someone capable of doing these killings. he also seems to at times display empathy towards people he cared about. what comes across to you in this? >> absolutely what you said. he's not insane. he doesn't have a serious mental illness like that. this is a man who feels like he is justified in doing whatever he needs do do to get his message out there. he's narcicisstic. he's rationalizing his actions. he's been victimized and he's going to inflict that on other people that he believes are to blame. he's a classic vengeance-motivated predatory violence individual who is just basically a disgruntled former employee who unfortunately has military and law enforcement training. so he's justifying his actions. he's homicidal and suicidal, but he's not crazy in the classic sense. he's got character flaws that make him think he's entitled and
11:31pm
special enough that he gets to do these things, that he gets to take matters into his own hands. >> you're saying he's not only homicidal but suicidal? >> absolutely. he's talking about willing to die as a consequence of all these things, so he's both homicidal and suicidal and extremely dangerous. >> the events he's pointing to, him getting kicked off the lapd, these went back to 2008-2009, why now? what sort of things would trigger this sort of reaction this long after the initial reaction? >> there's been appeals processes going on for a while that he makes reference to in terms of appeals with the courts that have been exhausted. i had heard he had left his job as recently as last friday, another job he had i think with the navy. there's all these options and things that were exhausting themselves, and it's often typical for workplace violence suspects like him to act out
11:32pm
when they do all their options for handling within the system, to become exhausted. that's, where believe, what you're seeing here. there's been a series of events and likely a recent triggering event that has basically kicked his whole plan he's been working on and fantasizing about for a long time into action. >> i want to remind you that the sheriff's department is about to hold a news conference in big bear, california, where the search is under way. i talked about this with john miller who thinks he spent a fair amount of time preparing his plan. >> he's been fantasizing about this act of predatory proactive violence for a long time, and he's been making all kinds of preparations. the preparations haven't been perfect, but this is a man who indicates in his manifesto, in his message, that he thought a long time about it. that he's going to use the skills he's learned in his different military experiences of law enforcement experiences
11:33pm
against those in those organizations and law enforcement in particular. so i think he's got a lot more planned. and we're going to see more from him, and what you have to be careful about is, you know, lots of misdirection, and i think that's part of what may be going on right now. >> we're going to be speaking later to some of the friends of this man, that he writes about, actually, in the manifesto, and he speaks highly of in the manifesto. it does sound like he genuinely cares about them. someone like that, someone he cares about as a family member or a friend, is it possible that person could somehow reach him in terms of if there was communication, talk him down, talk him out of continuing? >> the hope is one of those people that he looks up to, that he respects, that they obviously don't want him to continue this. his message has gotten out there that they would tell him they have seen this.
11:34pm
that he respects that want him to do so. and safety is paramount. you know, they're looking up there. he's resourceful enough to potentially hunker down up there and survive for a while. but he's also resourceful enough to be elsewhere, and they need to know that the professional men and women of various involved departments are going to be working very hard to resolve this and keep everyone safe. >> clearly, this is a man who has reached out to me here at cnn, he's reached out to other news groups as well, and he has this manifesto. he clearly wants to get his message across. if by any chance he is listening to a television tonight or this broadcast tonight, i assume you would suggest to him that the best way to get his message across is to give himself up,
11:35pm
